I'll say that most rappers are writers and lyricists. But not musicians.

Actually most rappers are just rappers. Some write their own lyrics and are songwriters. The rappers that sample beats are producers, and producers are most definitely musicians.

They often don;t play an instrument, can;t read music and steal their songs. If you can make your whole song on a computer by sampling beats, you're not a musician.

In a band? You're a musician.

Can read music and sing like Celine? I consider you a musician.

In an orchestra? You're a musician

One, how do you that they cant read music?

Two, how do they all steal songs?

So I can be a singer in band, not knowing how to play shit, but I'm a musician? Now you say if you can make your whole song on a computer by sampling beats, you're not a musician either? Okay, I'll give you 24 hours to make a beat and we'll see how good/bad it is since that anyone can do it.

You realize what sampling is, correct? They aren't taking the WHOLE song and using it as their's, most of the time its just a snippet of it, like the chorus.

Already have done it at university. It was easy.
That was about 8 years ago. Give it a shot, it's easy. You just need to be able to create a hook.

Rap is the music most often listened to murderers, rapists and thieves. It should be eradicated.

There's obviously a difference between sampling a beat (making it yourself) and stealing an instrumental from somebody else. In the first case, if you do it well and don't just rip the original song you are a musician imo.

BTW Cedric, not all rappers are misogynic retards who rap about their cars and hoes.

You're a musician

a) because it's your profession

or b) because you perform or write music

if it's b), then yes, they are musicians, but then so is everyone who has uses his voice to sing.
